Still felt pretty sore today from Friday’s session. Despite this, I decided to go hard again and focus on my V4s and V5s. My warmup climbs were mirrors of my climb on Friday. Things started getting messy when I bumped up to my normal climbing grades though…here are the stats:

2018 YTD

  • 33 sends (+10)
  • 14 failures (+7)
  • 95 pull-ups (+20)
  • 65 pushups
  • 25 ab reps

Overall, this wasn’t a pretty climb, but a necessary one. All my failures were on V4s and V5s, so that’s the silver lining from this log. Also, I stayed consistent with clearing at least two V5s (this became my main goal, which is why I had four failures after my first V5 send). I was gassed by the end of this workout so kept my cooldown short with ten quick pull-ups. I’m going to take it easy on my next workout.
